Tutoring With Sharon
I have many hints that make it easier to remember formulas and understand and work with difficult concepts. I also wrote test questions for standardized tests and can easily identify reasons for errors made to help students better identify the correct answer. I include many HANDS ON activities.
I enjoy helping others be successfull. I enjoy puzzles and look at math as puzzles. Both require building blocks but you need to determine which to use and where. I have seen many smiles on the faces of students who were struggling before working with me.
